These labels are comprised of anti-counterfeiting properties along with tracing and tracking technologies to aid manufacturers to keep their track of internal processing and packaging, incoming ingredients, and outgoing shipments to traders. They are available with a variety of adhesives according to the requirement and are free of waste, hassle, and liner.
